4. OF Rymer Liriano– The 2011 Midwest League MVP made his MLB debut last year for the Padres. He hit .220/.289/.266 in 109 at-bats. Liriano projects to be anywhere from an average big league outfielder to an above average one. His impressive tool is his speed-power combination. Liriano is 23, and will have to prove himself at the MLB level. Liriano might become trade bait in the Padres crowded outfield, and could start 2015 as a fifth outfielder or in AAA. He is above average in all 5 tools and though none of them are above a 60 on the scouting scale, his potential is high. The main focus for him in 2015 is to cut back in the K’s.
Grade: B+ Potential: Average to above average player with solid tools
